EligibilityJCCA programs are designed to support foster children and their families. You must be enrolled in JCCA foster home or prevention service.
JCCA has been providing comprehensive care to thousands of children, young people and families from New York’s diverse communities since 1822. Our programs include foster and residential care, educational support, case management, and behavioral services. JCCA’s City’s First Readers’ program provides early literacy resources to young children and their families to build a love of reading and learning, including monthly Storytime events where children receive a copy of the selected book to read and treasure. JCCA’s CFR has also established a strong partnership with public libraries in order to connect families with community resources they can access at their leisure.Click here to learn more about JCCA
